Instead, it’s scrambling to fix a bug in its latest update, sent out through its Windows Insider Program last Saturday. According to CNET, the latest test version of the Windows software, build KB3074681, triggered unexpected behavior when some people attempted to uninstall programs through Control Panel instead of using the newer Settings screen.

    Guest author Yoav Vilner is a co-founder of Ranky. Startups in today's increasingly saturated market just can't overestimate the importance of business growth. Technology is a frenzied sector, and founders who want to make an impact often need to prove that their businesses aren't merely growing or thriving, but accelerating in hyperdrive. Rapid growth is not easy to achieve, and these days, it usually demands unconventional, creative approaches.

    Today, Motorola announced the successor to their Moto G, which has been their most successful phone in recent memory. It’s still called the Moto G, but this is the 2015 model which brings some long-needed updates to keep the Moto G fresh. These changes are far-reaching, and range from the SoC to the camera and design. In order to understand the new Moto G at a high level I’ve attached the specs below for those interested.   Moto G (2014) Moto G (2015) SoC Snapdragon 400 1.2 GHZ A7 Snapdragon 410 1.4 GHz A53 RAM 1GB 1/2GB NAND 8GB NAND + microSD 8/16GB NAND + microSD Display…

    Most of our US and Canada based readers are likely familiar with Rosewill. The company started as a subsidiary of Newegg and they were initially focused on producing simple bits and hardware at competitive prices. As the company grew larger and diversified into other segments of the market, they eventually fledged into a stand-alone manufacturer, with myriads of products filling their ranks and exports outside of the North American markets. Our latest review of their products was that of the Photon 1050W PSU a few months ago. Today we are having a look at another one of their PSUs, the Hive…
  • OnePlus Announces the OnePlus 2: 389 USD High-End Flagship

    Joshua Ho
    27 Jul 2015 | 7:02 pm
    OnePlus showed up on the scene last year with a “flagship killer”, the OnePlus One. For those that are unfamiliar with this device, it brought a Snapdragon 801 SoC, 5.5” 1080p display, and some generally impressive hardware at a 350USD price point for the 64GB variant. This made the OnePlus One a pretty incredible value, and to OnePlus’ credit the One remains one of the better choices in the midrange market due to its high-end specs. Today, OnePlus is launching the successor to their first device, which is called the OnePlus 2. To establish some of the basic…

    27 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    Although many consumers are not familiar with Huawei, they are a company that I have seen selling smartphones for quite some time now. In the earliest days of the smaller Canadian carriers Huawei was one of the few companies that had smartphones available on their networks due to their use of the AWS band for HSPA which was uncommon in other devices here at the time. While Huawei has always had one or two flagship devices and makes some phablets, to me their core market was always mid range devices. Often these mid range devices are a downsized version of their flagship devices, and the…

This means that the major fundamental breakthrough that would put them over the top was in hand and merely a lot of investment, engineering and scaling was needed. The goal of being able to solve NP-hard or NP-Complete problems with quantum computers is similar to being able to travel to the moon, mars or deeper into space with rockets. Conventional flight could not achieve those goals because of the lack of atmosphere in space. Current computing seems like they are very limited in…

    The release of Windows 10 is bringing with it a range of perspectives on the eagerly awaited operating system and what it means for the future of computing. One of the biggest questions has been around its impact—or lack thereof—on PC sales.

It seems that in 1998, a Texan by the name of Warren Sandvick applied for a patent that casts an awfully wide net over remotely controlled sexual stimulation, specifically any of the sort that involves a user interface in a location different from the person being stimulated.

    Portland, the city, is back in the news again regarding Portland, the sign, and the city's insistence that it has a trademark over the landmark. We last checked in on this when Pabst, the brewery, had used an adaptation of the famous Portland sign to promote a concert in the city. The city then worked out an arrangement with Pabst so that it could keep using its sign imagery and keep the case out of the court. This was fully in the city's interests, because it's unclear on why a municipality should be granted a trademark on a local landmark's image when it isn't actually using that image in…

    The Chicago Tribune has a disturbing story about how the police in Hammond Indiana shut down an entire music festival because they didn't like a particular rapper, Chief Keef, who appeared via hologram (supposedly to avoid arrest for some outstanding warrants in the mid-west). The police don't even try to come up with some other bogus reason. They flat out admit that they didn't want Keef to perform and thus they shut it down: Hammond police Cmdr.

Components weren’t powerful enough to create smartphones and tablets. Gmail, Facebook, Twitter and Spotify didn’t exist. Microsoft had just released the original Xbox and Windows XP. Read More

     Apple is preparing to expand the sales effort behind the Apple Watch after it was announced that Best Buy will begin selling it in its U.S. stores from August 7, making it the first independent retailer to stock the wearable device. In its most recent quarterly report issued last week, Apple declined to break out sales of its new wearable device — which debuted in April — other than… Read More

  • Does Ringly Have A Place In An Apple Watch World?

    Sarah Perez
    24 Jul 2015 | 1:50 pm
     The first thing I thought when I opened my Ringly box was that it smelled. Bad. Like electronics that had caught on fire and were then put out in some sort of chemical bath. But the company told me that the ring I received (an early review unit sent to reporters) was part of a bad “beta batch.” More recently, they replaced it with another. It didn’t smell nearly as bad.

    Motorola’s Moto X has been a successful device and now the company has come up with its next generation variants, named as Moto X Style and Moto X Play.The Moto X Style will be called Moto X Pure Edition in the US, and it will come with pervasive LTE banding, which would enable it to be compatible with every carrier. The unlocked device will cost $399. On the other hand, the Moto X Play comes with a bigger battery, but a slightly smaller display. This time around, Motorola is focusing more on providing Android in its purest form along with its customization-focused Moto Maker service. It…
  • How To Use Google Maps Offline (Android)

    Karar Haider
    28 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    Google Maps provides amazingly detailed routes and makes navigation very simple. You can easily get to any area without finding yourself lost. However, the issue with Google Maps is that it requires an internet connection. If you are traveling to a place where data roaming is not available (or too expensive), this may not be an option.Downloading the World’s map in that app does not seem like a feature coming anytime soon, but Google does offers you the ability to download a map of a specific area (square km max). If you are going to a place that will not have access to the internet, then…

Of course you might recall that a previous report stated that not everyone will get the operating system right away and that it might be a while before it makes its way onto your computer, even if you have already reserved your copy.However according to several user reports, it seems that Windows 10 has already begun to pre-download itself onto PCs that have reserved their copy of the operating system. Some users have reported that the GWX folder has begun to fill up with files related to Windows 10…

However it seems that over in India where Motorola is also hosting an event, the company has officially announced the new Moto G (2015) handset.We can only assume that during Motorola’s US event that they too will announce the phone, but for now it seems that Motorola India might have gotten ahead of them. That being said, the device should be the same in India and in the US, so in terms of hardware, we…

The handset was announced today and it is expected to be officially released on the 1st of August across 60 countries.As far as its specs are concerned, safe to say that the Caterpillar S40 is a rugged device as you can tell from the way it has been designed.

    My friends and I love to go out for karaoke – the only problem is: so does everyone else. We have our one corner in our one bar where we wait for hours so that one by one we can belt out our favorite karaoke jams: “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, “Wagon Wheel” and my personal favorite “Wannabe”. We sit there for the entirety of an evening, enduring several overly-confident singers going for those high ballad notes, and even worse, the plastered college guys who think it’s funny to botch “Barbie Girl”. When it’s finally my chance to go, the glory moments are… Continue…

    13 Jul 2015 | 10:27 am
    Augmented and virtual reality tech is growing more popular by the minute. The difference between the two — if you don’t already know — is one takes place in a completely digital world while the other merges digital elements with that of the real world. Unlike VR tech, augmented reality devices allow you to interact with the real world in unique ways. Take modern AR apps for smartphones as an example. Yelp Monocle uses a combination of the device’s GPS and an internal compass to display nearby attractions such as restaurants, stores, bars and more. Google’s Ingress is one of the most…

    Janet Echelman isn’t your typical artist. Far from the traditional image of a lone painter standing at her easel with only a brush and paint palette, she works in conjunction with entire teams to build enormous public art displays. Her sculptures, which hang from metropolitan skyscrapers throughout the world, are formed using a variety of traditional nautical techniques, a creative eye and cutting-edge technology. Echelman, a classically trained artist, began experimenting with net sculptures while visiting a fishing village in India. She uses a variety of woven fabrics and lights to create…

    We know the standard answer to the question in the headline: Because it’s cheaper. But is it really? Now, if you’re an endless tinkerer and do-it-yourselfer, more power to you. If you like to fix your own plumbing and electrical, do your own landscaping, install your own cabinetry, pave your own driveway, or do your own taxes, we respect and appreciate that. Heck, you can buy a titanium replacement hip online if you’d like to install one yourself. The question is, should you?

  • TechnologyTell Review: Phiaton MS 100 BA earphones

    Stanley Goodner
    30 Jun 2015 | 2:23 pm
    When it comes to wearable personal audio, I tend to prefer on- and over-ear headphones. Not so much earphones, even though I’ve experienced some really great products for sound and/or features. For me, in-ear devices are all about the comfort and how well they can hold up to my binge-listening on a daily basis. If it’s not comfortable, you’re not very likely to wear it all the time, right? Now I’m a fan of Phiaton’s products for both looks and performance. But nothing prepared me for the level of comfort with one of their latest earphones. Design & Connectivity At first glance,…

    Chris Maxcer
    28 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    I still find wry joy in all the "Apple Watch Tanks" headlines from early July. There are some great gems, like "Apple Watch is a FLOP: Sales of the gadget have fallen by 90 percent since April, report claims" or "Analyst: Apple Watch selling worse than thought." Trouble is, the reports and estimates were based on a tiny slice of reality. In fact, after Apple's earnings call with analysts last week, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that Apple Watch sales were higher in June than in April or May. So, how is it that sales are tanking?

    The scary news last week was that a couple of guys demonstrated they could hack into a Jeep and take control of it. Later, more details came out that suggested you might want to avoid Chrysler cars altogether. The industry appears to be waiting for the first major catastrophic accident before putting resources into fixing this problem at the proper level. They are slowly forming industry groups to look at it -- but at the current rate, their fix will come long after a lot of us are dead.

    Dell's Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet is designed for people who work in the field, for the military and explorers, for industrial work and first responders. This system can handle some harsh conditions, including temperatures between -20 and 145 degrees and drops from more than four feet, as well as spills, mud, dirt and sand. It boasts an 11.6-inch screen, fifth-generation Intel Core CPUs, up to 12 hours of battery life, and up to 512 GB of solid-state storage. That sturdiness is something I'm all for.

    27 Jul 2015 | 7:27 am
    Google's new service for organizing and backing up images blends some of the best of what Apple and Yahoo have rolled out in recent months. These services come as smartphone cameras get better, and people take more photos and video with them. The problem is many of the images simply sit on the phones, taking up valuable space. Worse, digital memories can disappear when phones are lost or stolen. Photo services from Google, Yahoo and Apple all store copies of those photos and video online. Images taken with tablets and stand-alone cameras can be added, too, giving you one home for your entire…

    Say goodbye to your stock broker and financial planner. No more trips to Wells Fargo -- you can get your home loan refinanced on your iPad. The financial tech boom is in full force, driven by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs creating Web and mobile technology to offer personal and business loans, manage IRAs and college savings accounts, plan retirement, buy and trade stocks, and refinance mortgages. Many of the financial services once offered only by people charging hefty commissions are now delivered by lean startups using lines of code, whose apps have extended credit at sometimes eye-popping…
  • More Women Crafting Online Businesses on Etsy

    27 Jul 2015 | 7:26 am
    Women-owned businesses may make up about 30% of all U.S. enterprises, but on Etsy, they are the majority. A report released Thursday by the company said 86% of sellers on the online creative marketplace are women. Sellers are also more likely to have a college degree (56%) and have a higher-than-average household income of $56,180. The flexible hours of online marketplaces and the ease of setting up shops have allowed more female micropreneurs to monetize their talents in new ways, said Sucharita Mulpuru, retail analyst at Forrester Research.

  • From Desktops to Phones: Windows 10 Rollout Begins

    26 Jul 2015 | 7:57 am
    After much hype and an abundance of testing, Windows 10 -- the latest version of the Microsoft Windows operating system -- begins this week, with release starting July 29. The new OS is scheduled to roll out in phases, going first to Windows Insiders and then being released in waves to users who have made reservations online. Enterprise users will begin seeing Windows 10 on August 1. Windows 10 will be the "last" version of the operating system. Rather than releasing future upgrades as discrete, numbered generations, Microsoft plans to roll out continuous updates as part of its operating…

    Social media giants including Twitter, Yahoo, Facebook and Google are pushing back against Senate legislation that would require them to alert federal authorities of any terrorist activity, according to industry and government officials. In private meetings on Capitol Hill, industry officials have told lawmakers and congressional staff that they already ban grisly content like beheadings and alert law enforcement if they suspect someone might get hurt, as soon as they are aware of a threat. But tech officials also said they worry that the proposed legislation is too broad and would…

  • A “Faces Of DEF CON” Clique?

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jul 2015 | 5:25 am
    Recently on Twitter, infosec pro Marcus Carey voiced his dislike for all the “Faces of DEF CON” avatars people are using. Specifically, he said every time he sees one he wants to unfollow the person. Asked why, he opined that it was “infosec clique culture at its finest.” I responded that I was keeping my own avatar and that he could go ahead and unfollow me. It was an honor to be included in the “Faces of DEF CON” series by artist and fellow infosec pro Eddie “EddieTheYeti” Mize, I told him. He unfollowed me (he later re-followed) and asked…

A moment of reflection if ever there was one. It occurred to me that Liquidmatrix just had it’s 17th birthday this past February. That is a helluva long time for a website of any description. It has been a lot of fun to see the site grow from an insanely (ugly) basic HTML site to a heavily trafficked site with multiple members either writing and podcasting.

    Soon, in various publications, articles will appear with advice for folks attending Black Hat and DEF CON for the first time. Advice for newbies is important, and I’ve written my own survival guide for that over the years. But for this post, I’m speaking to the battle-hardened veterans who have made the journey repeatedly over the years. Having attended too many of these to count, I consider myself a veteran. Or, to put it another way, I consider myself among the jaded. “Jaded” is a negative word. It’s typically used to describe someone who is burned out and no longer impressed with…

Family members took to social media to say that his prognosis wasn’t looking good; that he wasn’t expected to survive. But thanks to excellent medical care, prayer and what is surely a strong will to live, Stepto — director of hacker success at HackerOne — seems to have made it through the storm. Saturday, his family posted an update saying he was awake and breathing without help from a tube. “Although he is very weak, he has been…

    The OnePlus One smartphone was undoubtedly one of the most talked about mobile phones of 2014, becoming the smartphone of choice for those power users who were after a premium Android phone for a fraction of the cost of a Samsung model. However, there was just one problem: getting hold of one. Originally Chinese firm OnePlus used a truly maddening “invite” system to limit the number of people who could actually buy the phone, although eventually you were able able to pick the phone up from the official website invite free – in either 16GB white or 64GB sandstone black. On August 11th,…

That’s approximately 1 million units. A collaboration between 29 partners, including Lancaster University,  Barclays, Samsung and The Wellcome Trust, the micro:bit is the BBC’s most ambitious education initiative since the 1980s when the BBC Micro introduced many children, including myself, to computing for the first time.

  • EE unveils the first sub-£50 smart phone, the Rook. That’s over 10 times cheaper than an iPhone 6

    Chris Price
    7 Jul 2015 | 6:42 am
    Remember when smart phones were luxury items that people aspired to maybe own one day. Well those days are well and truly gone and suddenly £500 plus for an iPhone seems ridiculously expensive indeed. OK the £49.99 Rook from EE lacks the sex appeal of an iPhone 6 perhaps. But given it’s less than 10 per cent of the price of an entry level iPhone 6 (£539 SIM free) I’d say it’s pretty darned good value. As you would expect for this sub-£50 price tag, the Rook isn’t exactly stuffed to the gills with fancy features – just a basic 4.0-inch WVGA display with a…

One in four (24%) of those shots is captured at work and a third are digitally enhanced in a bid for , er, ‘self  improvement’ (seems it’s not just celebs and magazines who indulge in a bit of Photoshop). Most popular place for a selfie is not surprisingly on holiday,…

  • Will micro-LEDs disrupt OLEDs?

    Ron Mertens
    27 Jul 2015 | 9:01 pm
    Back in May 2014, Apple acquired LuxVue Technology, a private company that develops micro-LED based displays. Very little was known about this company and its technology, but since then interest in micro-LED displays is obviously higher.Candice Brown-Elliott, the creator of the Pentile Matrix technology (and the CEO of Nuovoyance), says that micro-LED has the potential to be truly disruptive. While it's still in an early stage, and using it to create large display is very challenging, a micro-LED display is attractive as it may be more efficient than an OLED display (as LEDs are currently…

Here's the event invitation:As you can see, Samsung is clearly hinting at a curved design - and this invitation is very similar to the Galaxy S6 event invitation sent out in early 2015.

Up until now the company only launched two curved OLEDs (the 55" and 65" EG9600). LG today says that they will soon launch new OLED TV models to the Korean market, including flat OLEDs.This is great news as even though LG claims that image quality in curved panels is better, many consumers prefer flat OLEDs as these look better when wall mounted. The price of the flat models will be the same as that of the curved models.Read more about LG to introduce flat 4K…

The idea is that consolidating the OLED production of both displays and lighting in the same company will enable LG to advance OLED lighting more quickly - and at a lower cost.The OLED Association goes on to speculate that LG Display may decide to convert one of its existing Gen-4.5 OLED display fabs to produce OLED lighting. This will make it even cheaper to expand capacity. Of course the downside is that LG Display will be more focused on displays than lighting as currently the…

  • STT-MRAM MTJ cells can be used to mimick the human brain's synapses

    24 Apr 2015 | 11:17 pm
    Researchers from France's Universite Paris-Sud and the CEA institute say that the probabilistic nature of STT-MRAM devices can be used to create synapses-like neuro system. This can be used to create efficient devices that mimic the human's brain method of operation.MRAM cells (or MTJs) store data using electrons magnetic spin. The technology uses stochastic switching, and so to be sure that a bit is set, you have to applying a current in the MTJ for a long enough time (to increase the probability of the spin changes). In these new experiments, the researchers take advantage of the stochastic…

Let me explain.To anyone who has travelled on Indian roads, this should be pretty obvious; to others, it might sound fatally amusing. One thing that vehicle drivers in India seem inherently incapable of doing is stopping before the white lines drawn at traffic signals (that is if they decide to stop in the first place).Thankfully, there is ONE thing that can stop almost all of them: cats. A cat crossing ones path is considered inauspicious (to put it mildly) and Indians would do anything to avoid…

Only Montreal, squeezing in at 20th, improved among Canadian hubs. The index is produced by ranking ecosystems along five major components: Performance,…

    27 Jul 2015 | 3:38 pm
    Snapchat has lost two content partners, but added two more as replacements. The ephemeral-messaging app removed Yahoo and Warner Music Group from its branded content aggregation platform Discover. In those companies’ places, Snapchat has signed up BuzzFeed and iHeartRadio. Discover, which charges advertisers two cents per video ad view, allows brand partners to publish what are known as Stories, 24-hour pieces of content made up of video, text, and images. Both Yahoo and Warner Music Group were two of the dozen or so launch partners when Snapchat unveiled its Discover platform in January…

    Between its production spaces, its creator-focused advertising campaigns, and its recently-expanded original programming team, YouTube offers lots of support to its homegrown stars. At VidCon, the world’s largest video site assisted its top creators in a novel way: It set up a “speed dating” event at which it paired its stars with representatives from relevant brands. According to Adweek, each YouTube star was matched with a brand that fits his or her brand message. Beauty icon Bethany Mota, for example, met up with Maybelline, while the filmmakers from Wong Fu Productions had a chat…

    Google’s 2013 decision to incorporate Google+ accounts into YouTube’s channels and comments resulted in one of the most intense user firestorms in YouTube history. Nearly two years later, Google is reversing its change, as Google+ accounts will no longer be a requirement for creators who wish to post content on YouTube. Google’s decision to decrease Google+’s influence across its other properties is not surprising, given the limited impact the social media network has had in its four years of existence. “In the coming months, a Google Account will be all you’ll need to share…

    For all things simple, including my ChurchMag​ infographic articles, quick opinion pieces, and inspirational video posts, I simply use the WordPress​ native app. Easy, and so distraction free, that anything else would be silly. But I have been getting into longer form articles (read 700+ words) as well as ebooks (9,000+ words) which require something more.

    I’ve read a bunch of books on social media and they all have the same problem: they’re outdated faster than you can say Facebook newsfeed. Likeable Social Media is no exception unfortunately, despite the fact that the book was updated from a previous version and was newly released this year. Any book that still mentions Foursquare as a legit social medium is and highlights Facebook’s introduction of the ‘Like’ button, well, outdated. Plus some of the examples are a little ‘old’ as well, like mentioning how great Ashton Kutcher is at tweeting (he…

I’ll stick with Flickr. Here’s why. If you want unlimited free storage, this may work for you, though when you upload your photos, you have to use Google’s ‘high quality but free’ setting, not the original setting. This means RAW and other file formats will be converted. Also, there doesn’t appear to be a way to share the link directly to the image file — rather all shared links jump to a Google…

    Despite owning an iPhone since 2007, I barely use it to its fullest potential. I sometimes use Siri by accident or stumble into a random tab in Settings and quickly get out of there. But, of course as it turns out, I'm missing tons of hidden features that make life a little less complicated - and you might be too. For example, did you know you can teach Siri how to pronounce a name and keep emergency medical information a tap away, just in case anything ever happens?

  • Java Code: How to get open File Descriptors / File Handles

    5 Jul 2015 | 5:39 am
    One of the mysterious reasons for hanging of a long running server is running out of file descriptors. While you can delay the problem by increasing file descriptor (also known as File handle) count, it will not solve the problem in most cases. Then you need to figure out which method is leaking the file .... Read the original article  : Java Code: How to get open File Descriptors / File Handles.

  • Thermaltake Poseidon Z Plus Smart Keyboard

    28 Jul 2015 | 6:07 am
    If you are tired of your old "dumb" keyboard, you might want to check out this review of the Thermaltake Poseidon Z Plus at Benchmark Reviews. Thermaltake's "Tt eSPORTS" division has a new idea for a feature: a Bluetooth 4.0-enabled smart keyboard that, in conjunction with an iOS or Android applet on your phone or tablet, tracks and compiles statistics on how you use your keyboard (and your enabled mouse, if you have one) for posting to social media.

  • Scientists Use Oil To Turn Cells Into Working Lasers

    28 Jul 2015 | 5:07 am
    Researchers at Harvard Medical School has developed ways to turn human cells into functioning lasers by injecting oil into them. Individual cells have been turned into tiny lasers. "It's actually super-easy," says Matjaž Humar of Harvard Medical School. The feat allows cells to be labelled and monitored more accurately, which could boost our ability to track the spread of diseases such as cancer. Comments
  • Former DHS Head Makes Case Against Back Doors

    28 Jul 2015 | 5:07 am
    The quote of the day is brought to you by the former head of the Department of Homeland Security. I think that it's a mistake to require companies that are making hardware and software to build a duplicate key or a back door even if you hedge it with the notion that there's going to be a court order. And I say that for a number of reasons and I've given it quite a bit of thought and I'm working with some companies in this area too. Comments
  • Firewalls Can't Protect Today's Connected Cars

    28 Jul 2015 | 5:07 am
    Focusing on stopping an attack after hackers are already in your system? That seems a bit risky. I just wonder why mission critical stuff like brakes, acceleration, steering etc. aren't on an isolated non-connected system in the first place. The automobile industry needs to follow Sun Tzu's advice to secure increasingly connected vehicles from hackers, according to experts. Instead of building firewalls to keep cyber attacks out, which industry watchers say is ultimately a futile endeavor, build systems that recognize what a security breach looks like in order to stop it before any real…
  • Google-Backed Company Partners With Ancestry To Beat Aging

    27 Jul 2015 | 4:07 pm
    This plan to come up with a pill that will help us all live longer seems a bit far fetched. Then again, the company in question is backed by Google so who knows? On Tuesday, Calico, the medical research company Google incubated in 2013, announced it had cut a deal for access to genetic information from Ancestry, the largest family tree website. It's among the first public moves from Calico, the secretive division born to (gasp!) extend human life. With its new DNA data — properly anonymized — Calico will look for genetic patterns in people who have lived exceptionally long lives, then…

  • Retail’s future is to solve the paradox of choice...

    20 Jul 2015 | 8:55 am in my view a seminal post from fellow UK blogger Nic Brisbourne, Managing Partner at Forward Partners. Nic makes (in my opinion) 3 very perceptive points in his post (here is my expurgation for the attention deficited Broadstuff audience , the whole article is over here on The Equity Kicker and more nuanced): The primary function of retail used to be access/distribution. In the vast majority of cases consumers had to visit high street shops to get products and manufacturers went through physical retail to reach customers.

  • The IoT as a Hacker's Toybox

    17 Jul 2015 | 7:56 am
    The IoT is 70% Hackable, says HP. Only 70%? It's hardly even growed up yet! PIcture Source My colleague David Short has long been concerned about the hacking potential on "digital cars", as all intelligent devices in a car typically share the same databus, and as they become more wired to "the grid" the probability of hacking will grow, whereas so far the probability of manufacturers to take preventative measures is at best static. (And, as David often says, "preventative measures" will only deter the casual hackers, taking care of the real professionals requires considerable redesign of any…

  • Xiaomi Announces Smart Water Purifier Along with 4K TV

    Xiaomi’s latest addition to its list of innovations was outshadowed by another. Last week the Chinese company launched two new products- Xiaomi smart water purifier and Xiaomi 4K TV. The smart purifier was launched along with the 4K TV by the Chinese firm. The 4K TV took the limelight for obvious reasons. Everyone was asking the same question, what is the point in having a smart water purifier? This smart purifier is a part of Xiaomi’s Mi Home network, yet it was met with surprise and muted ridicule – after all do we need our water purifiers to be “smart”? Similar to any other water…

  • Happy Birthday Copyright Bombshell: New Evidence Warner Music Previously Hid Shows Song Is Public Domain

    28 Jul 2015 | 5:27 am
    Last minute evidence that completely turns a legal case on its head doesn't come about all that often -- despite what you see in Hollywood movies and TV shows. The discovery process in a lawsuit generally reveals most of the evidence revealed to everyone pretty early on. And yet... in the high profile lawsuit over the copyright status of the song "Happy Birthday," the plaintiffs "Good Morning to You Productions" (who are making a documentary about the song and are arguing that the song is in the public domain) have popped up with a last minute filing, saying they have just come across…
  • Obviously, No One Ever Would Have Thought Of Remote Controlled Sex Toys Without This Patent

    Alright, people, strap in and keep the laughter to a minimum because we're going to talk dildos here. Specifically, remotely operated dildos, and other sex apparatuses, including those operated by Bluetooth connections or over the internet. It seems that in 1998, a Texan by the name of Warren Sandvick applied for a patent that casts an awfully wide net over remotely controlled sexual stimulation, specifically any of the sort that involves a user interface in a location different from the person being stimulated. You can find the patent at the link, but here's the abstract: An interactive…
  • Portland City Officials Agree Not To Sue Over Portland Oregon Sign To Keep Court From Ruling On Trademark

    Timothy Geigner
    27 Jul 2015 | 11:23 pm
    Portland, the city, is back in the news again regarding Portland, the sign, and the city's insistence that it has a trademark over the landmark. We last checked in on this when Pabst, the brewery, had used an adaptation of the famous Portland sign to promote a concert in the city. The city then worked out an arrangement with Pabst so that it could keep using its sign imagery and keep the case out of the court. This was fully in the city's interests, because it's unclear on why a municipality should be granted a trademark on a local landmark's image when it isn't actually using that image in…

    Astronomers only somewhat recently confirmed the existence of planets orbiting other stars like our own -- in 1995. Since then, we've found nearly 2,000 exoplanets, and we're honing in on more Earth-like planets that look like our own little world. Amateur astronomers have helped to identify a few exoplanets, and it looks like we'll be able to find more and more of them.

The Kepler Space Telescope has found an 'Earth 2.0' exoplanet (now called Kepler-452b) that's less than twice the…
  • Police Shut Down Hologram Concert Of Rapper Because They Don't Like His Lyrics; Pretty Clear First Amendment Problem

    Mike Masnick
    27 Jul 2015 | 3:21 pm
    The Chicago Tribune has a disturbing story about how the police in Hammond Indiana shut down an entire music festival because they didn't like a particular rapper, Chief Keef, who appeared via hologram (supposedly to avoid arrest for some outstanding warrants in the mid-west). The police don't even try to come up with some other bogus reason. They flat out admit that they didn't want Keef to perform and thus they shut it down: Hammond police Cmdr. Pat Vicari said the promoters were warned the concert would be shut down if Chief Keef performed. "We spoke to the promoter several times, and they…

    BoingBoing posted a short movie by The MIT Media Lab's Knotty Objects group and noted hardware hacker Bunny Huang ask the question, "What if phones were designed to please their owners, rather than corporations?" In Southern China, where the majority of the world's mobile phones are made, there's a vibrant market for phones designed for all conceivable niches, where carrier subsidies, marketing campaigns, patents, trademarks, and other corporate-serving restrictions are ignored. If there's a possible market demand for a particular design, then someone makes a phone to meet that demand. It's a…

    Dave Winer, like Linus Torvalds, noticed something strange was happening to his e-mail, which led him to figure out what was going on. On Wednesday I wrote about a problem I've been seeing with GMail, or so I thought. Messages that I knew I must be getting were not showing up in any of my mailboxes in GMail. But when I searched for them, they would show up. I heard from other people who had seen the same behavior. And I heard from two people from Google who work on GMail, who asked all the right questions. And gave me really detailed instructions on how to help them debug this. Creepy.

There’s no step counting or sleep tracking here, it’s all about the pool, and as such, Garmin is strokes ahead of […]

The only noticeable addition is the new, vibrant JBL logo. If you missed the JBL Charge 2 when it first came around last year, the biggest […]

    In an effort to unite the Windows Eco-system across a variety of hardware Microsoft has made many changes to make "Windows 10" work on the majority of devices out there, even ones with age-old hardware specification. To see exactly how well the new operating-system goes on with old hardware, Softpedia performed a quick test of installing and using Windows 10 on a 7-year-old Acer Aspire One powered by Intel Atom N450 processor clocked at 1.66 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, and a 320 GB hard disk. The results were quite surprising, the total installation took just 15 minutes from a USB drive and Windows 10…

    In most offices, creating an invoice will take a lot of time. To make one, you need to determine your clients and the amount of money needed to create the bill. After identifying the details, you have to make the bill and then print it. You also need to track the bill to know if it’s paid or not. If there are complaints, you have to check all of your records to verify it. All of these processes will consume a lot of time. Making an online invoice is not just less expensive, but is also more organized and will take up less time. If you want to create PDF invoice, you’ll be glad to know…

    Now that Google has moved Google Photos away from Google+ and has tied it into Google Drive, Google has started adding all sorts of features I plan to blog about later. However, this feature roll-out was announced yesterday and is worth a special shout-out. (I’m a fan-boy of Google Maps.) As described by the Google Maps blog, the “Time Line” feature on Google Maps will not only let you tie location information to a Google Map, if you use Google Photos, it will display those on the timeline and map, as well. A similar “photo-on-map” feature has been on Flickr…

If you are among the 12 people who read this blog, I don’t need to catch you up. South Carolina did the right thing. Other states should follow. And, members of the U.S. House of Representatives should also. From the Washington Post story, “As S.C. prepares to lower battle flag, Boehner calls for Confederate review,” comes this quote that…

    Funny or Die and the music festival Bonnaroo “teamed up” to take four “old people” in their 70s to Bonnaroo so the other 80,000 attendees could see how cute four old people can be when interacting with festival goers and hearing new-fangled music. Old People At Bonnaroo from Funny Or Die   In addition to being blatantly ageist bigotry, the premise seems to fall apart when you consider that Funny or Die’s criteria for being an “old person” is being born before 1946. By that definition, here are some other cute old people they could have…

    Data is eating me alive. Every gadget these days can shoot photos and record video. The move to smaller but faster SSDs hasn't helped with storage. I captured 275GB of photos and videos on my last trip. Just one trip! And I'm just a hobbyist photographer with a mere 12MP camera. If you shoot with any regularity and a 20MP+ camera you'll easily be clocking more than a terabyte a year. Where on earth do normal people store that much data?

The embedded tweets are interactive in the sense that they’ve a follow button, they show live retweet counts, and you also use CSS to change the formatting of tweets. Now CSS does help you control the tweet’s appearance but you may be surprised to know that it is also possible to change the other elements of an embedded tweet. For instance, you may modify the actual text of the tweet. The favorite & retweet counts can be altered as well. Let me illustrate that with an…

    The BMW 3 Series is the founder of the modern sports sedan segment and has been fêted as an icon of this vehicle class for 40 years. A few weeks ago, BMW has launched the BMW F30 3 Series LCI (Lifey Cycle Impulse) revealing the mildly updated 3 Series. The car received some minor cosmetic changes, but the biggest impact will be the powerplants installed in this vehicle. The car has received a lightly redesigned headlights package which now looks more a keen to the 7 Series design, making the much discussed issue of the headlights disappear rather nicely. The headlights now feature a few more…

    America’s biggest air show, EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh Wisconsin, finally had their biggest visitor yet! It’s a B-52 Stratofortress bomber, visiting one of the most appealing air shows held in the territory of United States and it made a big impression. The reason why BUFF (Big Ugly Fat Fucker – an affectionate term used for this awesome aircraft) never visited this airfield is its sheer size! The B-52 is pretty much as wide as airfield’s main runway, making landings a daunting challenge for even the most experienced pilots. The occasion for the big airplane’s visit…

  • Making the Most of Shooting in Crappy Weather

    Terry White
    26 Jul 2015 | 9:11 pm
    As a portrait and fashion photographer I rarely have to worry about weather because I’m usually shooting in studio and controlling the lighting and environment. However, when I travel I become a travel/landscape photographer and just let me admit that it’s way way way more challenging. The 3rd stop on my Adobe tour took me to Hong Kong. Since it was my first trip to Hong Kong and I had plenty of time (a week) I was in no rush to go out shooting on day one. I arrived late Friday evening and on Saturday it looked like the shot above. I went out for lunch and captured the above shot…

    I’m traveling in Asia for the Adobe Create Now/CC Launch tour. My first stop was Auckland New Zealand and my hotel room just happened to have a balcony. Whenever, I have a private balcony that’s an added bonus when it comes to photography because it usually means that I can leave my camera setup for extended periods of time to shoot long exposures and time-lapse scenes. With a beautiful view of the harbor I decided to shoot a time-lapse. Since I don’t shoot time-lapse very often I Googled “best time-lapse settings”. Most of the result offered pretty much the same…

  • Aperlite YH-500N Review: A Great Low Cost Speedlight for Nikon & Canon Photographers

    Terry White

    Speedlights are great for being able to light your subject on location. You get a portable, battery operated solution that with the right modifiers can be a great asset. The only problem is that the name brand speedlights by Nikon and Canon cost hundreds of dollars. This makes it hard to justify buying two or three of them. My main speedlight is a Nikon SB910 and it’s currently going for $546.95 at B&H. That price point puts them in the range of studio strobes. At the end of the day you need a good light that works with the functions of your camera such as TTL, and doesn’t eat…

We were just as surprised to learn about the possibility of a Z5 when it has not been absolutely clear whether Sony ever brought the Z4 to the party. For the most people, the Xperia Z4 was the Xperia Z3 Plus the way it was announced in India. It was a minor upgrade and one you saw Sony release very half-heartedly, barely pumping any…

However, one spot where the Motorola Moto G lost out to its elder sibling that was the Motorola Moto X was the entire customization game. Yes, the phone did come with back shells that could be swapped, but that was about all that you could do with the phone. There was no option for users to be able to use, say a wooden finish back or even a leather back panel and you had to go back to…

  • Ford’s new ‘camera-based lighting system’ to keep its night riders safe

    20 Jul 2015 | 12:43 pm
    Ford is developing a range of advanced front-light technologies designed to prevent accidents and keep night riders safe. The technology is camera-based and geared towards detecting movements of the vehicle’s steering wheel. The first development is labelled ‘camera-based advanced front lighting system.’ It is based on older technology; an adaptive lighting system and traffic sign recognition.

After the recent Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition, we have had even more companies asking for our advice on which platform to use and why.

    Background From late 1990s until about 2011, before I did a lot of web development and programming, I worked on projects that usually required the functionality offered in the Adobe Creative Suite. Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and at times InDesign were my tools of choice, simply because that is what I was taught to use in school. Then, in 2011, my laptop’s hard drive failed and numerous attempts to reinstall Windows 7 failed due to it thinking that I was stealing the OS. A friend suggested that I install a GNU/Linux and try free and open-source tools. Shortly after, I was presented…

  • ACP Releases Wiser Cancer Screening Techniques

    Meghann Kiernan
    26 Jul 2015 | 10:53 pm
    Regular screening increases the chances of detecting certain cancers early, when they are most likely to be curable. However, screening strategies vary in intensity and value. Many people have a lack of understanding about the trade-offs of screening. Studies report that patients and many physicians overestimate the benefits and are unaware of and/or downplay the potential harms of cancer screening. High intensity screening strategies are not necessarily high value care. In a paper published recently in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the American College of Physicians (ACP) issued advice…
  • Exercise Can Help Manage Fibromyalgia Pain – Finds Study

    Natalie Tornese
    23 Jul 2015 | 11:52 pm
    Fibromyalgia is a long term condition characterized by widespread pain in the muscles and soft tissues surrounding the joints throughout the body. Reports from the National Fibromyalgia Association show that about 10 million people in the United States suffer from this condition. Even though this condition affects both men and women, about 80-90 percent of cases account for women (mostly middle-aged women). The most common symptom associated with this condition is widespread pain that may initially begin in one area of the body such as the neck or shoulders and eventually spread to the entire…
  • Medical Coding for Burns in the Emergency Department

    Julie Clements
    21 Jul 2015 | 10:22 pm
    It is very important to remain very cautious when coding for burns in an emergency setting. This is mainly because the medical coding rules and regulations for burn care are complex, are subject to change often and errors can cause big revenue loss to your practice. When it comes to proper coding, you should use the right diagnostic codes, CPT codes and evaluation and management (E/M) codes with the correct modifiers. ICD-9 Diagnostic Codes 940: Burn confined to eye and adnexa 941: Burn of face head and neck 942: Burn of trunk 943: Burn of upper limb except wrist and hand 944: Burn of…
  • Tomosynthesis More Effective to Detect Breast Cancer

    Rajeev Rajagopal
    19 Jul 2015 | 10:31 pm
    According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), most doctors feel that early detection tests for breast cancer can save thousands of lives every year. Most of the practices rely on screening to find cancer before the patients start to show symptoms. Several billable screening techniques used for women include mammograms, clinical breast exam, breast-self exam and even MRI screening. However, a new screening study from Lund University, Sweden has revealed that digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) can detect 40% more breast cancers than traditional mammography. Researchers claim this as the first…

    Cardiovascular imaging plays an essential role in the practice of cardiology. Technological advancements in ultrasound imaging have allowed the miniaturization of ultrasound units, making them portable enough to be carried to remote communities. Echocardiography enables visualization of the heart directly in real time using ultrasound, providing instantaneous assessment of the myocardium, cardiac chambers, valves, pericardium, and great vessels. Two research studies were published recently in JACC (Journal of the American College of Cardiology): Cardiovascular Imaging that provides a…

    23 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    Part of the job of a technical author is to edit, review, read and understand articles that people have written. So you get a feeling for what works and what doesn’t. The primary conclusion I have drawn from this is that simplicity is key. Simplicity makes things quicker to read. It makes them easier to remember and increases the satisfaction level of the reader. Sounds like simplicity is good, can you go too far? Before you can simplify you need to have a clear understanding of what you are trying to say in the first place. You can oversimplify by leaving out essential information and not…

    Jonathan Robbins
    13 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    I recently was at a customer that used a build depot for Windows OS deployment to new and previously used computers before they were delivered to employees’ offices. The depot enabled the customer to build up to 100 computers a day and the customer had the peace of mind knowing that every computer being built was getting the same Windows image and applications.  This process has been in place for well over a decade and had been accepted by employees as the standard process for receiving their computer. As a result of building computers at this central location, many new employees had to…

    Problems arising from not looking at the whole picture Sometimes known as Reclaim, or Harvesting – most ITAM / SAM professionals agree that removing unused software is part of a good and complete IT Asset Management programme.

One anecdote that exemplifies this to me happened when I was discussing reclaim with a potential customer a year or two ago. She was responsible for Software Asset Management across a 50k seat organization. I asked her if she looked at application usage…

While the adoption rate of the traditional software edition of Microsoft Office is currently in no danger of being overtaken by its cloud-hosted cousin, recent adoption rates for Office 365 have substantially accelerated.

    In Which I report on the Evil Masterminds of GamerGate It was a very last minute trip and I arrived in Paris very late Friday night, checked into my hotel, which, having been picked at random for convenience, turned out to be in a slightly Beirut-looking part of town, and went to sleep after eating the two packets of crisps I had got on the Eurostar. Yet the Hotel room was not without a certain charm despite it being the size of a small cupboard. This was in the bathroom. In case you can’t see it the caption says: La Joconde, Musee du Loo-vre In the morning I had to get bak to Gare du…
  • The Roosh Event in London

    5 Jul 2015 | 10:59 am
    Well, first of all, let me say I enjoyed Roosh. I was pleasantly surprised. Now, in order to understand why that is a seriously powerful endorsement, you need to know that in general my opinion of PUAs is somewhere below contempt. I have written on this before, and I will now go on a little detour to explain what I think is wrong with PUAs in general. If you don’t care, feel free to skip to the next bolded heading further down.   It’s not that they try to get laid with lots of women, that’s just called being male. It’s the lies. The hypocrisy. The weakly bendy springs they have in…

      You may know about the Evil Legion of Evil and it’s admirable assault on the forces of Political Correctness. You may in fact, even be a Vile Faceless Minion. You may even be Proud about it. And yet; there remains an unfulfilled level of pride. And as the Evil Empire of Evildoers well know, Arrogant pride in our Evilness is basically a requirement. Many Vile Faceless Minions are required. Indeed we must accept that their bodies are useful for the making of steps with which we, more arrogant, more specifically and intentionally Evil, Evildoers climb over the bastions of Social…
  • CHILD 44 – A Brief Review (No Spoilers)

    27 Apr 2015 | 2:20 pm
    This has made it onto the top 10 films I have ever seen. When searching for the image above, I also came across the fact that the average review for it is very poor, between one and three stars, which initially (and stupidly) shocked me. This film is truly amazing and or a variety of reasons, but primary amongst them is that it is a very real portrayal of what happens when Political Correctness becomes the ideology of the day. And yes, I really do mean that, and yes, the emphasis on Political Correctness is indeed on Political. But do not be fooled. What you think is harmless garden variety…

    Companies have long assumed that if they build a better mousetrap and effectively communicate the benefits, consumers will come. Most companies’ efforts, therefore, are centered on the development and optimization of new products and/or services. Developing a superior product, however, is only half the picture. For a new product/service to be adopted, consumers have to be willing to part with an existing product/service/behavior. This is easier said than done, even when the new product or service is clearly superior. Barriers to change The problem: people are generally averse to change. A…
  • Ulta vs. Sephora, a Shopper Loyalty Battle Royal

    Choosing where to shop for makeup is a very personal decision. Here in Chicago there are a lot of options, but in my mind there are two main competitors: Ulta and Sephora. When I first moved to Chicago seven years ago, Ulta dominated the market, and I suppose that makes sense given it is a Chicago-based company. When I ventured into Ulta for the first time, just to explore, I remember that being the moment when my floodgates of makeup-crazed girly-ness opened. Yes, they carried some of the drugstore brands in one section of the store, all very familiar thanks to my teen years, but to the…

However, when we see our favorite product sitting on the store shelf in a fun new package (right next to the package we’ve always bought), and it costs a little more than we’re used to paying, we’re still pretty likely to put that in our cart – and we’re savvy enough to know that the product inside is exactly same as…

I think it’s a safe bet that Americans don’t want European laws governing our technology. But what if the United States had its own Right to Be Forgotten (RTBF)? That’s the proposal that’s been…

  • US intelligence community report: America's weak response to cyber attacks will encourage more breaches

Disclosure of the intelligence assessment, an analytical consensus of 16 US spy agencies, comes as the Obama administration is debating how to respond to a major cyber attack against the Office of Personnel Management. Sensitive records on 22.1 million federal workers, including millions cleared for access to secrets, were stolen by hackers linked to…
  • Immigrants are sending billions home each year, and getting that money across borders has turned into a massive, entrenched industry

    28 Jul 2015 | 7:03 am
    Globalization has made borders much more porous. Workers look abroad for better opportunities to earn money, which they can then send to their families back home. But getting that money across borders isn't simple, which is why immigrants have been heavily dependent on remittance companies like Western Union, MoneyGram, and Ria.  The problem, though, is that the fees these companies charge are often very high, and substantially cut into workers' earnings. That's why digital-first companies are starting to seize on the opportunity in the remittance industry. In a new report from BI…

    If you've been paying attention to trends in finance, you know there's a lot of buzz around startups in financial technology, more commonly known as FinTech. FinTech companies are using the power of the internet to disrupt the financial industry. By cutting out the middle man (i.e., banks) and lowering costs, they're able to make financial services far more efficient and consumer friendly. Fundrise, a DC-based startup, may be building the biggest opportunity in FinTech yet. While many of the industry’s high-profile startups like Lending Club have focused on consumer lending (a $420 billion…

  • Noctua NH-D15S Dual-Tower CPU Cooler Review

    The Noctua NH-D15 is one hell of a CPU cooler. The improvements over the NH-D14 is appreciated since it allows installation of taller heatspreaders. But when I reviewed motherboards like Gigabyte X99-UD4, I found that the space between the CPU cooler and the first PCIe x16 slot is non-existent when I mounted Zotac GTX 780Ti Extreme AMP! Edition. Yikes!!! At that point, I felt that motherboard makers should be more ‘friendly’ with larger CPU cooler especially with an Intel X99 platform with up to 4x PCIe x16 slots. Yeah right. Easier said than done with an ATX form factor. Noctua…

The Situation escalated quickly and people (including reviewers and Youtubers) taking sides. Some didn’t care, some practically went on a witch hunt in Facebook, tech forums and even in Reddit. Some welcomed it because it did bring aesthetics and design accessible to a larger crowd.   Though to be fair, Core series…

    16 Jul 2015 | 12:22 pm
    Noctua sent a very good looking CPU cooler- the NH-C14S. This is a C-type CPU cooler which has a top-down airflow design. The CPU cooler can accommodate up to 2x 140 x 140 x 25mm fans, but with a choice of a single fan, you can either mount it towards the top for having high clearance required for tall spreaders and even maybe some sinks on the motherboard (you’ll be surprised). I am keen on reviewing this since this does provide some level of low-profile height with a full-size heatsink design, making it look good even for few small form factor DIY desktop systems.

No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In…

Also: the corruption and mishandling of state workers’ and private sector workers’ pension and health insurance funds. Those are the problems begging to be solved. There’s no problem either with non-registration of SIM cards. The real problem lies in the failure of authorities to use all tools at their disposal to dismantle, arrest, and prosecute syndicates.

The law requires that “the state invest at least 10 percent of the auction proceeds within the most disadvantaged communities and at least 25 percent of the proceeds be invested to benefit these communities.”And that’s why Roy Rivera, a disabled man who lives on a fixed income in Sacramento, now has solar on his roof – and more than 1,600 similarly low-income households will as well.California…

  • CPUs: Core Count vs. Clock Speed, Which Is Better?

    Miguel Leiva-Gomez
    27 Jul 2015 | 4:25 pm
    The central processing unit (CPU, or processor) on your computer is by far one of the strongest determining factors of its performance. Without a fast CPU, the rest of your hardware will overwhelm it with more tasks than it can muster. During the mid 90s, when the desktop PC market was picking up the pace significantly, CPUs would have only one core. Today’s modern CPU is an architectural marvel, with several different channels for distributing and temporarily storing tasks. They’re smarter, faster, and more dynamic. But new CPUs have raised new questions among the public. In…

    I open the new tab page in Chrome at least a hundred times a day. And right now all it’s doing is showing me a couple of shortcuts to my favorite websites. It’s not serving me much purpose. I can get to them using the bookmarks bar, keyboard shortcuts or via Alfred. The new tab page, I’ve decided, is an untapped resource for some productivity enhancement throughout the day. The two best ways to utilize this space is to put to-dos or notes there.Think of it. You, too, probably view the new tab page a couple of dozen times a day.

    Things should look a little more familiar on Windows 10. Flickr/, CC BY-NDThe latest version of Microsoft’s Windows operating system will begin rolling out from Wednesday (July 29). And remarkably, Windows 10 will be offered as a free upgrade to those users who already have Windows 7 and 8.1 installed. That the upgrade is free is an interesting move and comes off the back of much criticism over Windows 8. Interestingly, the software giant has also skipped over any planned version 9 of Windows.

I will be upgrading to Windows 10 on July 29, because it’s my job to be running the latest version of Windows. If it wasn’t I don’t know if I would be making the switch. at least not immediately. Windows 10 is a good OS, in my opinion. It’s much better than Windows 8.x, and the price (free!) is certainly attractive. But if you’re on the fence about making the upgrade, my honest advice is to stay there a while longer. Here…

    Accidents tend to happen all around us. A quick glance at the daily newsletter will make one realize how insecure and unpredictable our dwelling region is. Mishaps occur at every corner of the world and there is nothing a single being can do to prevent it. One need not say less, about the devastating events of 9/11 in America and 26/11 in India. They are the proof of existence of the most ruthless and cold-hearted clan of the humans. One can absolutely do nothing, to prevent the assaults by a group of terrorists who are motive less and driven by an unending thirst for blood. Also, in light of…

    28 Jul 2015 | 4:12 am
    Enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay, or ELISA, is a diagnostic tool that identifies antigens such as viruses and bacteria in blood samples. ELISA can detect a number of diseases, including HIV, West Nile virus and hepatitis B, and it is widely used in hospitals. It can also be used to identify potential allergens in food, among other applications. A team of researchers from the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA has developed a new mobile phone-based device that can read ELISA plates in the field with the same level of accuracy as the large machines normally found in clinical…

    Google officially made an announcement on splitting Youtube and Google+. According to that, you’ll soon be able to comment, upload, and create channels without Google+. The comments you make on YouTube will appear only on YouTube and not on Google+ (and vice versa). People have told that accessing all of their Google stuff with one account makes life a whole lot easier.

    28 Jul 2015 | 5:26 am
    Ormai ci siamo, domani 29 Luglio esce Windows 10, ma non sarà così facile dire “Windows sarà disponibile quel giorno”. Questo perché Microsoft ha deciso di procedere gradualmente, permettendo di ottenere il nuovo sistema operativo prima ai cosiddetti Windows Insiders, ovvero i tester della preview, mentre per tutti gli altri il roll out impiegherà diversi giorni. Se non avete prenotato l’aggiornamento gratuito da Windows 7 o Windows 8.1, è il momento di farlo: Microsoft ha infatti offerto prenotazioni tramite messaggi pop-up nel centro notifiche Windows.

    28 Jul 2015 | 3:30 am
    Ahinoi, purtroppo a volte anche il Mac può ammalarsi. Nonostante ha una reputazione per essere il sistema informatico meno infettato al mondo, l’Apple può comunque dire che esistono dei programmi capaci di, sotto le giuste occasioni, infettare il nostro OS X. Visto che il sistema non può essere infettato facilmente, non esistono grandi quantità di soluzioni, anche se comunque possiamo trovare qualche pratica per sistemare il tutto.

    Diciamoci la verità: la sicurezza non è mai abbastanza. Possiamo puntare ad un po’ di protezione in più mettendo qualche password, ma anche in questo caso è possibile raggirarle in tanti modi. Possiamo mettere un programma che controlla e cripta i nostri dati, ma anche quello è raggirabile: basta insomma che qualcuno ha accesso fisico al nostro PC. E’ ora di smetterla: c’è qualcosa che può funzionare come un controllo remoto a distanza ed istantaneo?   La risposta è sì: ormai esiste un App per tutto! In questo caso, ovviamente, per gli smartphone collegati al nostro PC.

    Even with the remote hosting option we mentioned last week, you may hit some trouble if the file you are selling is over the 2 GB limit we provide for remote files. But fear not! There is a work around. Our remote file size option being limited to 2 GB is a hard technical limit that is imposed by our web server architecture. That limit is derived from the maximum value that can be represented by a 32-bit signed integer, which is 2,147,483,647 bytes, which is 2.147 GB.Some people have asked us, and maybe you are asking it too, “why don't we just upgrade the web server to allow larger…

    24 Jul 2015 | 2:13 pm
    This week scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have created two dimensional nano-electronic circuits just 1nm tall (see Nature Communications article). Apparently they were able to create two crystals ontop of one another, then infuse the top layer with sulfur. With that as a base they used  standard scalable photolitographic and electron beam lithographic processing techniques to pattern electronic junctions in the crystal layer and then used a pulsed laser to burn off selective sulfur atoms (selective sulferization of the material), converting MoSe2 to MoS2. At the end of this…

Their customers are updating their storage system software every 2 weeks. In my past life as a storage systems development director, we would normally have to wait months if not quarters before customers updated their systems to the latest release. As a result, we strived to put out an update at most, once a quarter with a major…

I am sure even if you have not used any of the existing container technologies, you must have at least read or heard about them. I am not the first one to write about containers and this is certainly not an in-depth overview of container technologies. I will eventually get there and show you how you can deploy different container technologies. This series of articles is about my own thoughts and a documentation for my own reference.

    I’ve been ranging far afield from my usual tech histories over the last few weeks. Here are my recent reads. Startup Boards: Getting the Most Out of Your Board of Directors (Brad Feld) My advice on this book is sort of like the movie Fight Club. The first rule of Startup Boards is: don’t read Startup Boards. The second rule of Startup Boards is: don’t read Startup Boards. Don’t be fooled by the Amazon rating. Brad Feld, whose books I usually enjoy, mailed this one in via a co-writer. This book has all the liveliness of reading an articles of incorporation. If you are completely new to…

    Over the past few years, the Internet of Things has gone from theoretical concept to our everyday lived experience. It’s no coincidence that some think we should instead be talking about the Internet of Everything. But despite the advances we’ve made in the past few years, it looks like the real explosion will only happen in the next five years. According to a new report from Juniper Research, the number of connected devices will grow from 13.4-billion in 2015 to 38.5-billion in 2020, a rise of over 285%. Interestingly, the vast bulk of that growth won’t come from the…

    “It won’t happen to me.” Dangerous words in any context, but when applied to identity protection this attitude can have truly frightening and negative effects that may only be revealed years down the line. Despite a growing community of aware individuals, reported cases of identity fraud and theft in South Africa for the end of 2014 is estimated to reach 4 000 – a significant increase from the 1 370 reported cases in April 2014. Overall, identity theft is estimated to cost the country R1 billion per year. Even the South African Police Service admits to being inadequately equipped for…

  • Selfishly Altruistic: The Science Behind Sharing

    Renee Schmidt
    14 Jul 2015 | 1:09 pm
    Altruism is fascinating. Partly because it goes against what we understand of human nature —that people inherently desire the greatest amount of instant gratification with the least amount of effort. As I wrote recently, what separates us from our ape cousins is this very desire for instant gratification. Humans, because we have a better-developed pre-frontal cortex, can assess second, third, or even fourth order consequences of any given action, and CHOOSE to inject self-discipline in favor of a longer term outcome (i.e. pain now, gain later). The pre-frontal cortex is involved…
  • Are You Living a Lie? The Wisdom of Truth

    Renee Schmidt
    7 Jul 2015 | 8:05 am
    As a management consultant, my success hinges upon radical honesty. When a consultant is brought in, it’s usually because an injection of truth is required. As Albert Einstein put it best: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” People are afraid of the truth. Avoiding the truth about situations, people, and ourselves, however, prevents us from learning and keeps us stuck in repetitive patterns that thwart our evolution and the attainment of that which we truly desire. This is no different in an organizational setting. Companies that…
  • Manifesting My Desires: Am I Worthy?

    Renee Schmidt
    6 Jul 2015 | 10:12 am
    I have been considering what it takes to manifest more of what I want into my life. This led me to question: am I worthy of what I want? And how does one determine self-worth or self-value anyway? The whole endeavor sounds like a big ego trip. It’s not. Three types of people will read this post; those with 1. healthy self-worth, 2. low self-worth and 3. inflated self-worth. Individuals with low and inflated self-worth are both egotistical; it’s just different sides of the same coin (sorry to be the bearer of bad news). Low self-worth often exhibits as not manifesting what we desire.

But by and large, people will not. If you desire my substantiation, or thoughtful reasons why you may want to do the same, here are a couple of reasons why I’ve taken  my ~10 year old profile down. 1. Too much noise and none of it is of particular value. I noticed myself busy with Facebook but not getting any particular value out of it.

Each of them have their benefits and their downfalls, and that’s what we’re going to explore in this blog. Will desktop reign superior? Or will mobile finally be the one that knocks desktops off the edge and into oblivion? We’re not psychic, but the trends thus far allow for some very interesting patterns to emerge. So let’s take a look at them before making an educated prediction as to…

    23 Jun 2015 | 5:42 am
    Recently Google added some new features to its applications Google Translate, its web and app-based automatic translation service, but how does it compare to human translation services? In the Verbalink test, the translation abilities of two Spanish translators, Adrianna and Gaby, were compared against Google Translate. The first section of the test compared translations of a document about Argentina’s National Beekeeping Council from Spanish to English. The second part of the test was a translation of one minute of spoken audio form Spanish to English. The results were judged on word…

    Ever since gaming became its own subculture it has been fraught with controversy, taking the blame for everything from laziness in young adults to the horrors of the Columbine shooting. However, despite the standard media narrative that gaming is destructive, the fundamentals of gaming offers society more positives than negatives. At its core, gaming is about competition, whether against yourself or other players. You’re trying to get a better score, level up, have the most points for the round, or get the best loot from the raid. It’s no surprise then that there are 183 million active…

I really want to ship, but it has to be right. For those who do not know the 80/20 rule, it’s a variant of the misnamed Pareto Principal wherein Vilfredo Pareto created a mathematical formula in 1906 to describe the unequal distribution of wealth in his country, observing that 20% of the people owned 80% of the wealth. This was then applied to other areas and seemed to hold true. In reality, Tom Cargill had it right…

It's a surprisingly low price for one of Motorola's typically high-quality phones, especially since the Moto X is a pretty powerful device. The Pure Edition is designed to work on any US carrier, but because it comes straight from Motorola, it comes without carrier branding or bloatware. It's even customizable, just like the standard Style. Motorola also says that the Pure Edition runs "pure Android," which…
  • Delta will now let you upgrade your flight to a private jet, if you're extremely lucky

    28 Jul 2015 | 6:49 am
    Private aircraft are typically the exclusive playground of millionaires and billionaires, but Delta is rolling out a new program that might — might — put them within reach of the normals. The airline is going to start offering private jet upgrades for $300 to $800 to Medallion members (Delta's name for its frequent flyers), but only if the stars align: there needs to be an aircraft that's going to be sitting unused near their starting point, which can happen if, say, someone takes a chartered flight and there's no return flight planned. The upgrade "includes transportation to the…
  • All the news from Motorola's Moto X event

    Kwame Opam
    28 Jul 2015 | 6:48 am
    Motorola held a global event from New York City, London, and Sao Paulo to unveil three new smartphones today: the Moto X Style, Moto X Play, and third-gen Moto G. Each phone builds on the successes of previous iterations, all with improvements on battery life and camera — areas where Motorola has struggled in previous years. Motorola has a chance to make a big splash with these devices; while the company's phones have never sold as well as Samsung's own offerings, they've earned high praise from press and consumers. Maybe 2015 will be the year for Moto. Continue reading…
  • You can customize and buy the new Moto G with LTE today

    Jacob Kastrenakes
    28 Jul 2015 | 6:31 am
    This year's Moto G may have been one of Motorola's worst kept secrets, but it's still taking the time to formally announce the new smartphone on stage today. And Motorola's announcement actually confirms one important thing: the new Moto G now includes LTE as part of its standard model. That hasn't been the case until now, and it was one of the low-cost smartphone's biggest downsides. With this new model, which Motorola is releasing today, the Moto G becomes an even more compelling choice for people looking for a cheap smartphone. Even without LTE, it was already our go-to choice.

    26 Jul 2015 | 4:23 pm

From family owned business to large conglomerates, life science organisations face special requirements, including the need for maximum efficiency across the R&D cycle, strict quality assurance processes and regulatory compliance.

  • Four core ways that IoT will improve technology

    23 Jul 2015 | 8:38 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/karandaev) The Internet of Things (IoT) is just as much a platform as it is a new standard for technological development and integration. Just as the personal computer enabled new use cases and gave end users new ways to be productive and be entertained, IoT will enable a number of digital improvements to the status quo. All these potential improvements and use cases belong to one of four main uses, much in the way that previous technologies, like the PC, touched all industries.

  • Which beacon shines brighter: Eddystone or iBeacon?

    21 Jul 2015 | 3:03 am
    (c) It always made sense that Google would eventually enter the beacon space. In many ways, it’s surprising that Google didn’t get there first. After all, the technology is essentially putting cookies into physical spaces and bringing many of the same technology we use on the web to the physical world. The tracking, advertising, contextual aware potential of the technology made it a Google no-brainer. Eddystone, likely inspired by the lighthouse off the British coast, is Google’s entry into this space. According to Google, the company spoke to a number of…
  • IoT and Developers: Is reality meeting expectation?

    17 Jul 2015 | 8:07 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/Devrimb) The Internet of Things (IoT) has successfully made the transition from futurist buzzword to a tangible reality. The wearable phenomenon and the promise of a connected fridge or toaster in every ‘smart home’ are proving to be the earliest drivers, with the ecosystem likely to broaden over time. In fact, for a relatively new market, the IoT is growing and maturing quickly: Intel has found that the amount of connected devices in the world has grown 6.5x since 2006. There is understandably a lot of excitement around what the IoT means in terms of…

    (c) Injection of $35 million will boost awareness of this important market Back in October 2014 I argued that managed mobility services are getting hot and it's about time, because the speed of change and complexity of mobile technology in the enterprise shows little sign of slowing down.

  • Shadow IT and why the CIO should not be the ‘CI-NO’ but an enabler of change

    26 Jul 2015 | 4:23 pm
    (c) A new report from Fruition Partners argues CIOs are not applying traditional IT service management (ITSM) processes to cloud technologies. The survey, which buttonholed 100 CIOs, revealed more than four in five (83%) say ‘cloud sprawl’ makes IT management more complex. Looking at it another way, IT departments simply are not applying the same testing standards to the cloud as they would for in house IT services. One company, in the construction sector, found they had 300 copies of a cloud-based project management tool for only 200 project managers.

In a way, they are like parents – they want the best and they can see possibilities that the offspring can’t. Tragically the IoT cannot benefit from the wisdom of their experience. In part, this is because it refuses to let them. Another major reason, it turns out, is that its…
